are divided as a country. we are almost evenly divided on the issue of abortion. i do not think the law is changing anytime soon. the way you change things is change the hearts and minds of the population. we are worlds away from that. we get bogged down in talking about exceptions to rules. we get uaway from the primary question we are worried about. that is 23 people -- 23 million people out of work. i am socially conservative, but i talk about economic issues because i think it is important to the country and what unites a lot of us. it does not divide us. talking about the debt and the budget and unemployment are things that everyone is concerned with and everybody should be on the same side of those issues. >> let me go back to susan ferrechio comment about the races you are supporting. can todd akin win the missouri senate race? >> i think he can win. missouri voted 70% in a referendum against obamacare. i think the president has stopped campaigning there. i did not think many people are listing it as a battleground state. missouri has become more conservative and more republican.

of abortion around i don't think the law is changing any time soon. i think the way you have to change things is you have to change the hearts and minds of the population and we're a ways away from that, so when we get bogged down in talking about exceptions and bizarre sort of exceptions to rules, i think at that point, we're getting away from really what the primary thing that's going on in our counsel interest that people are worried about and that's 23 million people out of work, $6 trillion in new debt, and so i primarily talk only about the economic issues, even though i am socially conservative, but i talk primarily about the economic issues because i think it's what's important to the country, and what unites a lot of us. it doesn't divide us. i think talking about the debt and talking about the budget, talking about unemployment are things that everyone is concerned about and everybody really ought to be on the staple side of those issues. >> let me go back to susan's comment about the races that you're supporting, including indiana and missouri, specifically with the ads on the air
